WPC: Symmetry


  1. the quality of being made up of exactly similar parts facing each other or around an axis

    “this series has a line of symmetry through its centre”

  2. correct or pleasing proportion of the parts of a thing

    “the overall symmetry makes the poem pleasant to the ear”

  3. similarity or exact correspondence between different things

    “the political symmetry between the two debates”

The Sydney Opera House

I could have gone for architecture for this week’s challenge, but as I have only recently written a post about that I thought I would try for something different. My choice is to represent the third definition of symmetry.

My question to you is, “have I pulled it off?”

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  3. You did a very good job on this one, Jude. “Very, very smart “say Siri and Selma, such a beautiful Magnopera, we never saw anything like it …
